Choosing a side requires consent, and consent has consequences
You didn’t ask for my advice, but here it is, nonetheless.
Stay close to the Shepherd, There are wolves.
There are some very good observations in the article. Some questions though, since the Bible is referenced, Where in the Bible are borders set by criminal mankind shown to be approved by God. Since there are Christians in virtually every country, at what point does God say, since your criminal leader(president or other) tells you to murder your brothers within another manmade border it's ok.
And man's evil against evil does not work. On the other hand, it seems God has the view that violence takes care of violence when directed in the correct direction. Kinda like The world wide flood, Sodom and Gomorrah War in Heaven broke out, etc. Voting is a good example of giving consent to a corrupt group of murderers. In a representative Government, the voted in party is a reflection of the voter. If you vote someone into office and they commit murder using that office, you are responsible you chose this person as your representative. Also, if you vote, even if your chosen candidate is not elected, you supported the system that caused whatever problems this newly elected criminal causes. Order followers are the problem and always have been. The Bible states plainly at 1 Thessalonians 5:21, “Make sure of all things; hold fast to what is right.”
I like this statement "Consenting to evil is akin to relinquishing our moral compass. It involves becoming complicit in actions that undermine the well-being of others and contribute to the perpetuation of harm. The refusal to be complicit in wrongdoing is an acknowledgment of the moral responsibility that accompanies the exercise of free will." It would seem to apply to voting for the lessor of 2 evils which means you are voting for evil. It would apply to any joining of the military where you lose your right to morally decide your course. Instead you become an immoral order follower. My opinion here means absolutely nothing as a basis for truth and reality. So don't shoot the messenger. I am relaying the things I have studied for over 50 years now. I always like to point to a statement that I believe is the best answer we have to all of mankind's problems other than the fact that we are all doomed to die at one time or another. “All things . . . that you want men to do to you, you also must do to them.” (Matthew 7:12; Luke 6:31) I did enjoy the your article and the thought put into it. My statements aren't criticize, but to add some thoughts. These statements maybe wrong or maybe right, but thinking individuals will look these things up and try to bypass Cognitive dissonance to get their answers. It has taken me a long time to fight my own Cognitive dissonance and look for truth and understanding. Thanks and have a great day.
Short and sweet and to the point. Thanks for sharing this perspective. I agree. 💕
When someone comes into your home and kidnaps your child, and then leaves, you are no longer in danger, but I believe most of us would pursue and kill that person if they had to in order to rescue their child.
Returned for cause without dishonour in commerce; no lawful consent; no legal contract; offer to contract declined. That's what you write on the unopened envelope at a 45° angle if you should get " that notice"
Olivia, very insightful article. Truth spoken. Honesty, integrity and honor was called to action. People do the will of destructive individuals and follow the crowd that is doing wrong. That makes them evil, rationalizing inhumanity and injustice to life. It's about time people stop identifying with various criminal "isms", Nazism, Zionism, Communism, and Transhumanism...,etc etc. The diabolic, criminally selfishness of all "isms'
A Nation that does NOT serve the the Lord cannot stand on morals. Morality cannot be governed who would be in charge of thought crimes; we are Free of Free will; when the people realize they are truly free…well lets just say “…if we offered the world a chocolate bar we would have peace…”
